The first room I was assigned stunk of mold, just unbearable… the second one was marginally better. Apparently their AC system is moldy. Since the AC was off in the second room when I entered, the mold smell was very faint, though it was still stuffy. Luckily the weather was cool enough that I didn't need AC during my time.
Another big downside is the lack of wifi anywhere but the lobby. In the lobby the speed ranges from unusable to barely tolerable.
Breakfast isn't very good. Flies on the fruit. Hard to screw up a hard boiled egg though.
At the least the rooms are a nice size. Staff helpful.
Lastly, to pass along a tip another guest said to me: Be careful not to burn yourself on the 'hot' faucet in the shower. It has absolutely no insulation, so if you are not careful you can seriously burn yourself adjusting the water temperature. I used a spare hand towel to adjust.
